Small paintings

Carré d'artistes presents a wide selection of contemporary paintings in small formats but sculptures as well. Miniature formats have dimensions which have crossed centuries of art history. Far from being belittled, small-scales painting takes on a certain mystery and trigger curiosity. We are encouraged to come closer and discover the details, shapes, designs, and colors. The first miniature illustrations appeared in 1520. For centuries, small sizes were used to represent loved ones and distant ones. A small painting provides a rather intimate side to what it represents. During the 19th century, with the arrival of the daguerreotype, painters such as Alphonse Plumier turned into photographers by representing colorful photographic miniatures. Contemporary art plays around with reduced formats to question reality. It leads the viewer to see better through a small size, what he may see on a daily basis, through a large version. Contemporary canvases in small formats of contemporary paintings are available in 13x13 up to 36x36. At Carré d'Artistes, discover paintings by great artists specializing in small painting formats: Dom Dewalles, Ann R, Morten Pedersen, Baubeau de Secondigné, Franz Alias, Nathalie Cubero, Ode Droit, Gustavo Ortiz ...
